Wonderful nighttime beverage - especially if you are having trouble sleeping! I used skim milk and added a pinch of nutmeg. If I have a little more trouble sleepling I just might add a little shot of bourbon - whatever works! Read More

My dad used to make me something just like this he called "Fairy Nectar". Knowing him, he probably added a little dollop of something stronger... Thanks for the cozy recipe! Read More

Quite good :) UPDATE: I changed my mind: VERY good! The secret is leaving the milk in the microwave for close to 3 minutes. Read More

I have this often in the winter when it's soooo cold out. It's perfect just before going to bed. Try it with almond extract instead of the vanilla. Awesome! Read More

This is a wonderful drink I have used for this for years on end. It's "Fairy Food" to me and is great to drink and very calming. Leaving this for the fairies outdoors brings good things if you believe:) Read More

Fond memories of warm milk and honey served to me by my beloved grandmother at bedtime prompted me to give this a go particularly since I was curious about the addition of cinnamon. I hadn't had this in probably 50 years! It was ok but the cinnamon and vanilla kind of got in the way for me perhaps only because my memories bias me. Whole milk as I enjoyed this in my childhood makes this particularly rich creamy and satisfying. In addition just warming it was more appealing easier to drink (and safer for children!) than heating it to piping hot. This is a wonderful comforting drink especially for children and especially if your grandma brings it to you in bed. Read More
